I have had my trimmer for 1.5 years now, and I have used it EVERYDAY.. over 500 Layouts and 60 cards, as well as pics and the blade is just now starting to get dull! This trimmer is light weight so it is portable, it is easy to use and very easy to store in small spaces. I would definitely recommend this trimmer for anyone with a low budget, small scrap space or for people who travel with their supplies alot.
I love this trimmer! After years of frustration with other trimmers' uneven cuts and dull blades, I've found this. If you use the finger guard correctly, it always cuts straight (don't skip the finger guard or it cuts really, really crooked). The blade is self-sharpening. I wish I'd found this sooner.
I have been having the best time with this little gem, triming photos and smaller pieces of background paper.
I have a larger Frisker's trimmer that is good for 12" paper but this little trimmer is indispensable for my scrapping.
